Regular at Friday happy hour Consistent good food, concentrating on fish as per name. Nice ambiance, good service. The place for seafood on the center of Shops of Avondale retail and dining. Has it's own small parking lot, with an attendant after five--a big deal in this crowded area

We've lived in the Riverside/Avondale area for a year, but we've never stopped into Blue Fish. My husband popped in here yesterday and suggested we come back for our anniversary this evening. We sat at the bar and Shannon and Adam were a delight! We ordered the Appalachicola oysters, the mussels, truffle fries, and pork osso buco from the happy... More

This is a very hard area to park unless you are lucky. They have a SMALL valet parking lot, and we arrived before it was full. We were seated in an area which we had requested and our wait staff Masha was great the entire night. Food was good, but maybe not as good as the prices indicated. We did... More

The Blue Fish has a great happy hour menu! The bartender mixed up some delicious flavored martinis. I also ordered the House Chips and Mini Pork Osso Bucco from the happy hour menu. It was pretty cheap but so delicious! The pork was fork tender and served with the most amazing gravy/sauce over potatoes.

What a fine evening in the old Jacksonville neighborhood along St. Johns Ave. Hotel recommended Blue Fish and the first class bar served great martinis. Then, oysters Bienville followed by lots of black beans with the yucca fries next to the cod with Cuban sauce! We recommend the fine neighborhood driver to set the mood for local fine dining in...

I am not a frequent customer at Blue Fish but felt in the mood for seafood when taking my mom to dinner. The staff was very accommodating and the food was vey good. Had the Oyster's Rockefeller for an appetizer - I'm more of a fan of raw oysters than broiled, but they were good for a starter. The arugula... More
